Let it Hurl!!
You may have recycled the tree, put away the presents, and eaten the leftovers but have you dealt with the dreaded fruitcake from your Aunt Polly? If not, this is your opportunity. Head to Manitou Springs, January 9th and have fun disposing of the fruity, nutty "gift."
Manitou is immediately West of Colorado Springs and knows how to have fun and take a lighthearted look at life.
How better to cap off the holiday festivities that to join in the hurling and launching at the 15th Annual Great Fruitcake Toss? Competitors and spectators will gather at the Manitou Springs High School Track for a final holiday "send off". Bring your own cake in one, two, or fourpound sizes or "rent" one for $1.00. Fruitcakes must contain glaceed fruits, nuts and flour – they cannot contain anything inedible. Don’t wrap in foil, duct tape, etc., all fruitcakes must be visible to the "Fruitcake Toss Tech Inspectors."
Just imagine how happy the squirrels are to clean up after the event. :)
